Impressionist Landscape

abstract barron landscape 5x7

Spring one day –
Winter the next.
Impressionistic landscape

62 degrees at dinner –
26 degrees at breakfast.
Impressionistic feelings

March in like a Lamb –
Out like a Lion?
Impressionistic life

Cheers & Hugs,

  1. This is just lovely, Jodi! I love the mountains in the background and the foreground with the winter plants. Beautiful! I finally put some of my drawings on my blog (sidebar). If you get a chance, give them a peek. My favorite drawing, which was in color, I had to delete off because it had my name written on it.


  2. So beautiful! I love all of the textures and colors and things going on. I can see mountains in the background and plants in the front! Love this it is truly a spring painting. I laughed, yes the temperatures change pretty drastically!

  3. I love how the tones of the image are joined with the tones of the language! I can feel a type of melancholy as I read the poem and see the image out of the corner of my eye. It’s really powerful. Thank you for the work you do! So happy to NOW be following you πŸ™‚ With Gratitude and Joy, Zach from

    • Woohoo my Hero Teacher! That is exactly what I was working on with this simple landscape – back – mid- and foregrounds – YAY – I did it! And a sky that is getting complimented – wowza! Skies are a challenge for me. And guess what came today – all the way from Australia…….??? My Rekab Squirrel #2 – I almost hugged the mailman! He laughed that I had to get a watercolor brush from the other side of the world….. It is so lovely! I can’t wait to play with it. πŸ™‚

  5. That is a gorgeous landscape. And now that I’m in NC it seems like no truer words were written! Sunny here, then snow. We did see bears last night on the dog walk. So the winter nap is over and Spring is coming. Bears are better than groundhogs at predicting springtime. πŸ™‚
